Laguna Beach, Calif.--Diver's Cove
Beach in Laguna Beach is set at the bottom of a cliff with rocks
jutting out from the shoreline where waves slam in the pounding
surf. Beware! It is beautiful to look at but dangerous with
strong rip currents.
Diver's Cove Beach, a 300-foot long beach, joins
Picnic Beach at its southern end. Because of the structure of the cove, it
is very popular with families, and the water is usually crowded with
children. Popular activities include swimming, skin and scuba diving, and
body surfing. Those wanting to fish should try Boat Canyon (next beach to
the north) as fishing is prohibited at Diver's Cove Beach.
Seen in the photo above
is the set of steps with hand rails that lead to this stunning
Laguna beach.. We also have a
video of Diver's
Cove and this scene above that shows the panorama.
Hazardous and rip conditions are evident in all
directions. This beach is steep and has a shore break under all conditions.
The crack around the north point is always a potential hazard and should
never be entered or approached too closely. Under high tides or surf
conditions the rocks and point are closed. During heavy surf conditions, the
entire cove becomes a rip and pulls to the south. The rocks to the south
separating Diver's Cove and Picnic and should be avoided at all times.
